James Hawks et al. to James Monroe, [c5 January 1822]
We unite in the request which has been made for the postponement of the appointment of deputy post master for the city of Albany, (in case the removal of Mr. Southwick be determined on) until an opportunity can be afforded to the citizens of the place to express their wishes on the subject, and earnestly solicit that the same may be complied with.
We have the honor to be,
Very respectfully, your ob't serv'ts.
